Chiropractic and massage treatment supplements each other since the chiropractic treatment can take a lot out of a patient in terms of tolerance. Sometimes this is also known as chiropractic massage. Chiropractic treatment techniques, especially for spinal adjustments, require hand manipulation and massage. The chiropractor applies a sudden force to the joint in order to adjust it. These types of treatment should not be painful.
Chiropractic treatment is then combined with massage in order to stretch and relax muscles for further manipulation as needed. Massage treatment is also recommended for people in order to encourage relaxation of the muscles after a chiropractic treatment session. In fact, massage treatments are recommended for all ages, at least once a week to achieve overall relaxation and well-being. This is provided that they do not suffer any kind of chronic ailments that may be contraindicated against massage therapy.
A combination of chiropractic and massage treatment is relatively safe and effective as it does not involve any intake of any medication and is non-invasive in nature. Many people like to take on this type of therapy as it assuredly is therapy and relaxation all at the same time. Most chiropractors have different modes of treatment techniques that they combine in order to achieve the best results from a patient visit. The Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Massage Center, led by Dr. Amir Ahmadiyar, D.C. has a range of options available to its clients upon proper diagnosis. The facilities boast of up-to-date equipment and excellent patient care.
